Clay City, Northview earn gold ratings

Sunday, October 5, 2008

INDIANAPOLIS -- Both the Northview Marching Knights and Clay City Imperial Regiment received gold ratings Saturday in Indiana State School Music Association competition.

Both bands will now move on to regional competition in two weeks.

Competing in Class D, Clay City tied for Best General Effect with Eastern (Pekin) in Saturday's competition.

"I am really proud of the kids for how they have worked and what they have accomplished," Clay City Band Director Mark Ziegler said. "We changed the entire ending of the show this week and they had a lot of new material to learn in a short amount of time.

"Members of the band are continuing to improve their individual performances and as a result, the show as a whole is getting better each week. We need to keep building endurance and stamina so that each member can maintain a high level of performance throughout the show."

Triton Central, Eastern (Pekin) and Tri-West also received gold ratings.

Tri-West also won the Music and Visual awards.

Clay City returns to the field Saturday at Center Grove High School, beginning at 10:52 a.m. The Imperial Regiment will also compete at Ben Davis High School at 3:15 p.m.

The Marching Knights, competing in Class B, received a gold rating, along with Whiteland, Mooresville, Greenwood and Plainfield.

Greenwood swept the awards, winning General Effect, Music and Visual.

The Knights will also compete at Indiana State University Saturday.

Both bands will compete in regional competition in Jeffersonville Oct. 18.
